  3. Conifer cone or catkin

    I found these lignified plant parts that sort of look like conifer cones from the Pliocene/Pleistocene Merced Formation along the Coast just south of San Francisco. Douglas Fir and Monterey Pine cones occur in the same formation. What are they? Could they be alder catkins? Top photo: cone is 1.5 cm high. Bottom photo: longest cone is 4 cm. Thanks, John @paleoflor

  10. Greetings fellow fossil enthusiasts! I don't know what this thing is. I've shown it to several other fossil guys in Houston and they don't know what it is either. I think it's from a fish of some sort, other than that I have no idea. I found it in Hogtown Creek in Gainesville so it's probably Late Miocene-Pliocene. Scale bar is in Millimeters. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  11. Encope tamiamiensis

    The sample image here was collected directly from a Drag Line operator's windrow in a lime rock mine in Southern FL just outside of Naples around the Sable Palm area of the Big Cypress swamp of the Everglades in 1997. The specimen has been completely removed from the limestone petrol (lime rock low density ls) matrix. What is interesting is the general shape of the specimen and how this 5 million year old specimen differs from the present day specimen at the same general location. I am guessing the seas of which the archaic specimens existed in were more challenging to exist in general as the specimen appears more elongate than present day specimen possibly for navigational purpose in higher energy seas than say today. Consequently the respiratory flower on top seems to be larger than today's comparable specimen as a direct consequence in the different morphology.
  12. Mammoth Tooth

    Hi I do not know the area it was from looking for whatever info so I can I.D. the Mammoth tooth it is about 4" wide. Thanks
  13. Shark Week on the Discovery Channel starts tonight and one of the shows is about C. megalodon. It's on at 8pm Eastern and Pacific time.
  14. PLIOCENE FOSSIL ID?

    FOUND IN PLIOCENE DEPOSITS IN CYPRUS
  15. Hi below are some gorgeous teeth found this week on a Cape Town beach. Please note not all teeth were found by me - some were bought from other lucky local hunters. I suspect the second large tooth might be a transitional Mako feel free to let me know what you think.Feel free to message me if you want any more info on the teeth. (Please excuse rusty calipers)
  16. GMR! Here I come!

    Howdy all! I'm super excited about this and I'm looking for expertise and knowledge from all of you! I'm working in Chapel Hill, NC next week and I've paved out a day to FINALLY visit GMR!!! I'm a total noob to this area and what to expect. I've been doing research but I would humbly ask you all about your experiences, local knowledge, where to park (safely), points of entry, tools to bring (i have an good idea), areas to avoid, concerns, etc... I'm doing this alone unfortunately but that also adds to the adventure! I still haven't found my meg yet and it will be sometime before I'm able to get back out to Brownies Beach or Calvert any time soon... SO! I'm really eager to make this visit a great work out and to find some awesome treasures to share with my little boys! I wish they were old enough to come with me!

  18. Large Bone Fragment?

    Hello, this was found on a southern Minnesota river rock/sand bar. I have a guess what it is but wanted to see what your unbiased opinion is by not divulging my suspicion. It dense but pretty light like a piece of very hard plywood. This was found by a friend who loves hunting river banks and rock bars...
  19. UFO from pliocene marine sediments

    Hi everyone, I can't identify these fossils. They come from Pliocene marine sediments. What they are? Size of the biggest one 1.5 cm Thanks!

    It's a little beat up but I wouldn't trade it for the world.

  23. Marine fossil ID

    Dug this small fossil out of a sandstone boulder that was littered with bivalves and gastropod. A lot of the fossils found in the sandstone date back to the Pliocene so I can only assume it is from that period also. Thanks
  24. Pododesmus sp.

  25. Recently I’ve found some strange fossils from an area in Simi Valley (Southern California). I had thought there were only shells, but turns out there is vertebrate material! Among other fragments, I found a couple big whale vertebrae as well as this piece here that I am unsure about. I’ve seen some mentions of fossils from smaller marine mammals like dolphins and pinnipeds, maybe it’s one of those? Unfortunately there only one end present, so I’m not expecting to get anything too specific. The formation is about 5 million to 11 thousand years more. Hopefully I can get some more interesting things from that spot. Thanks!
